Sleep Dealer

Sleep Dealer

Alex Rivera

Set in the near-future, in a militarized world marked by closed borders, virtual labor and a global digital network that joins minds and experiences, three strangers risk their lives to connect with each other and break the barriers of technology.


Alex Rivera is a New York-based digital media artist and filmmaker whose work addresses the concerns of the Latino community through a language of humor, satire, and metaphor. Over the past ten years, he has been making work that illuminates two massive and parallel realities: the globalization of information through the internet, and the globalization of families, and communities through mass migration. His first feature film, Sleep Dealer, premiered at Sundance 2008, and won two awards, including the Waldo Salt Screenwriting Award.
